Soon she will be going from a blabbering mumbo jumbo speaking baby to being able to enunciate clear, complex words and sentences in only a matter of years. Neuroscientists are now able to paint a picture of the transitional period of what happens in a baby’s brain during this learning process. When a baby
By nine months, infants have developed the strength and control for independent sitting and the second hand can be used in object manipulation. In this phase, infants use one hand to position or operate one part of the object while they manipulate another part of the same object with the other hand.

“Loving relationships give infants and young children a sense of comfort, safety, confidence, and encouragement.” (Benorach, MD, 11). Thus help children develop trust, empathy, compassion, and a sense of right and wrong. Newborns are completely dependent on adults for their basic needs, and although unable to directly communicate newborns are able to express their needs through crying. “At six weeks old a baby learns to smile, by smiling the baby is able to signal that he/she wants to interact or play with you” (Berger,2013). By three months babies start experiencing new developmental stages, they are able to see close objects more clearly, and are able to follow moving objects better.
There is much evidence that the fetus learns the speech characteristics of its mother prenatally and prefers its mother's voice to other female voices after birth. It may be that by learning to recognize its mother prenatally the newborn infant has a "familiar" stimulus in its environment after birth to respond to.” (Hepper, 2005, para 18). “Once a child is born we begin helping them with tasks that are too difficult to master alone but that can be learned with guidance and assistance which is the (ZPD) zone of proximal development.”(Morrison, 2009 sec 14.6.1) this is the major concept of Lev Vygotsky theory. As our children grow we will interact with them throughout their lives. We may feel that a child should be at a certain stage in life; which would fit perfectly into Piagets theory that a child develops in stages.
Stages of language obtainment Yule, G (1996) says that all common children learn language such as speaking and listening about at the same time and have a similar timetable(1). Because most of the parents will teach their babies how to use their limbs, such as climbing, sitting, walking and clapping; etc., and it has been indicated that the language obtainment timetable has the same basis as the naturally decisive growth of motor skills. This natural stage is connected closely to the maturing of the baby’s brain. If there are some common natural programs in language obtainment, it should be interacted with the social activities in their infancy. We could believe that the children have the natural abilities to deal with identifying some facets of parents’ speech at distinct periods of their childhood.
